        DESCRIPTION:
        I love this book manly because of the little treasures found in the envelopes contained in the book (some of these facsimile memorabilia pieces are scanned below). By including these little trinkets, to me it makes it more than a book. It brings it alive - each little piece gives you a feel for the times the original was made, when it came out: the tickets give you a pass into the past of Pink Floyd.

        The mixed reviews from Pink Floyd fans has come, it seems, from the words written by Glenn Povey. It cannot be denied you don't learn anything new from the band and as he is an authority on the band I don't know why he didn't make it more readable.

        But I for one think the beauty of it vsually more than compensates for Mr. Povey's disappointing effort.


        FROM THE PUBLISHER (PARTLY FROM BACK COVER):
        Treasures of Pink Floyd tells the story of one of the most important bands in the history of popular music with words, pictures and removable facsimile memorabilia. The book recounts every decade of the band's existence and every album they recorded. It contains profiles of all five members and discusses the significant influence they had on music and culture across the world. This book is an essential purchase for every fan that wants to immerse themselves in the amazing, surreal and fascinating world of Pink Floyd.

        Few bands have been as artistically influential or as commercially successful as Pink Floyd. With over 200 million albums sold worldwide and a career spanning four decades, they remain immersely popular, attracting more fans with each new generation.

        Their story begins in the late 1960s as one of Britain's foremost psychedelic bands combining abstract music with intense light shows. By the early 1970s they had pioneered a new and progressive style of rock featuring quadraphonic sound, explosive stage effects and a theatrical narrative.

        Throughout the 1970s they created a series of unforgettable concept albums including The Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, Animals and The Wall. Their legendary stage shows became ever more spectacular, culminating in the eye-popping spectacle of their 1994 Division Bell tour.

        The Treasures of Pink Floyd takes you on the definitive journey through their career, examining the band's fascinating history and remarkable recordings in detail. Rare and previously unpublished facsimile memorabilia guides you through their rise from psychedelic stalwarts to stadium superstars with a range of beautifully reproduced posters, handbills, programmes and ticket stubs.


        ABOUT THE AUTHOR (BACK COVER):
        Glenn Povey founded the highly regarded Pink Floyd fanzine Brain Damage and was its editor from 1985 to 1993. He co-wrote Pink Floyd In The Flesh: The Complete Performance History, and authored Echoes, which superseded it as the number one authority on the history of the band. He has written extensively about the band for Mojo, Record Collector, Classic Rock and other music magazines. He works in artist management and tour production in the music industry and lives in Hertfordshire, England.
